It is vital to support any drug and surgical treatments with a more holistic approach.
Regular reflexology combined with lifestyle and dietary changes are very successful in combating the disease.
Endometriosis needs to be tackled both on a physical and emotional level.
Why does reflexology help?
Because it works on many different levels addressing the root causes behind the problems, not just tackling the symptoms.
Endometriosis is an auto-immune disease (when the body attacks itself) and as with many other auto-immune diseases, it is quite difficult for conventional medicine to deal with.
Immune system problems tend to be quite complex, often caused by a build-up of stress in the body due to physical and emotional factors and environmental factors such as plastic overuse in water and home and in cosmetics. Oestrogen dominance occurs (identified by Dr John Lee and his work with Virginia Hopkins) and thus illness and fatigue.
Our body is full of nerves and without it we would not survive, since it is the main communicator with the brain. We wouldn’t feel, see, hear, touch or feel pain or pleasure. Our body would not be able to respond to any of our commands. It regulates our “essential processes” such as breathing, heartbeat, digestion etc.
